Horvat scores twice, London beats Barrie 6-4, cuts Colts lead in series to 3-2

LONDON, Ont. - The London Knights staved off elimination, getting two goals from Bo Horvat in a 6-4 win over Barrie on Friday, to trim the Colts lead in the Ontario Hockey League final to 3-2.

Horvat's power play marker at 16:59 of the second period gave London a 4-1 lead.

He also scored a short-handed goal in the third, stealing the puck from Mark Scheifele, and then going in on a breakaway to beat Mathias Neiederberger to make it 5-2.

Seth Griffith, Chris Tierney, Max Domi and Brett Welychka got the other London goals.

Mitchell Theoret, Ryan O'Connor, Anthony Camara and Andreas Anthanasiou scored for Barrie.

The Knights led 1-0 after the first period and 4-1 after two.

London goalie Jake Patterson made his first start of the playoffs and stopped 25 shots. Patterson's only playoff time was 35 minutes in relief of Anthony Stolarz in a 6-2 loss to Kitchener on April 8th.

Niederberger stopped 28 of 34 shots for the Colts, and was replaced at 10:48 of the third period when Welychka's goal gave the Knights a 6-3 lead.

Until then, Niederberger had played every playoff minute for the Colts at 1,213.

His replacement, Alex Fotinos, stopped all three shots he saw.

London was 1 for 6 on the power play, while Barrie was 0 for 3.

Quote of the Day

Your team is going to want to recapture the feeling. What they're going to have to figure out is they're going to have to rewrite the story. Because you're going to rewrite the story doesn't mean you want a different end. It's just that you're going to have to learn that there's different challenges to get there, and if you're going to try and tap the same feeling, it ain't going to happen.
